End of season 10

We called it a season yesterday at noon. It was an overall warm season this year, I was bummed not to have snow to hunt in. The season flew by and I can not believe that it is already over!

Here is a quick recap of what we saw:

A group of 20 turkeys around all season

A group of 2 does and 2 fawns around the Sky Condo

3 single does in the woods

5 partridge

3 coyotes (shutter)

3 ticks (shutter and start scratching)

and 1 buck

  2. It was tag soup for me. Your venison should be tasty.

I can’t escape them!

There I was, morning mug of coffee and the newspaper. Enjoy some quiet before the day started. I turned the page and there it was – another article about ticks. I shuttered and as I read the article, I was informed that I am basically doomed. My hatred of those little...
